We have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher at the US Naval Academy,
Annapolis, MD, USA.   
The position supports our efforts at developing an autonomous  7-meter
marine surface vessel intended for operations in the Chesapeake Bay.  The
platform will be equipped with a rich set of sensors including 3-D LiDAR and
Infra-red cameras mounted on a inertially stabilize platform.

Applicants should be self-motivated and have a publication record in one or
more of the following areas:  estimation, localization, mapping, computer
vision, learning algorithms as applied to system identification, or
collision avoidance.  In addition, they should possess experience in
unmanned vehicles or "field robotics"; and have experience or interest in
supervising undergraduate projects (we are an undergraduate only
institution).  

The anticipated start date is approximately June 1st, 2012.   Applicants
must be US citizens.  More details can be found here:

The Naval Academy is the US Navy and Marine Corp's undergraduate technical
college.   However, candidates are not expected to have any military
background, nor will they be asked to carry any military duties, or
commitments.  Annapolis is a vibrant historical town located in central
Maryland, 30 minutes from Washington DC and Baltimore MD.
